Ski Racing – Competitive
The Squaw Valley Academy and Squaw Valley Ski Team strive to impact and better the lives of student-athletes by giving these young athletes skills for a driven, educated future. We educate students with the knowledge to be successful, empower them to create stronger performance, and engage student-athletes to inspire them to be self-motivated on and off the hill. The Squaw Valley Academy and Squaw Valley Ski Team understands that each athlete is an individual with their own genetics unique to themselves. Athletes establish the full range of motion for safety, mobility, joint stability, and muscular development. We aim to correct and address all imbalances before problems occur. Motor unit recruitment, central nervous system stimulus, and muscular fatigue are taken into account for training programming. The Squaw Valley Ski Team works very hard to reduce the risk of injury and the severity of potential injuries while maximizing skill development and performance. Through our creed – We will train hard, train smart, and train together.
